Intention to designate 2896 Dundas Street W. under thge Ontario Heritage Ac



all text the city,

The subject property is located on the north side of Dundas Street West, west of Keele Street in the Junction neighbourhood and contains a two-storey bank building originally known as The Molsons Bank (1911), and later as the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. It was listed on the City of Toronto Heritage Inventory (now known as the Heritage Register) in 1995.

Following research and evaluation, it has been determined that the property

meets Ontario Regulation 9/06, the criteria prescribed for municipal designation under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act for its design, associative and contextual value.

In November, 2017, the owner of the property at 2896 Dundas Street West applied for a Zoning Review to permit the construction of a two-storey addition over the two-storey building and a three-storey addition over the rear one storey.

Properties on the Heritage Register will be conserved and maintained in accordance with Official Plan Heritage Policies. Designation enables City Council to review alterations to the site, enforce heritage property standards and maintenance, and refuse demolition.

    The neoclassical facade is beautiful. I can’t imagine the Dundas strip without it. The addition should be sympathetic to the original architecture.
